"Sit down, I'm gonna tell you a story..."

Intro: C/G  [alternate roots back and forth]

Verse 1: 

C/G                            F             C/G
I'm gonna steal some bedsheets, from an amputee
C/G                                     D                G
I'm gonna mount em on a canvas, in the middle of the gallery
F                   Fm          Am      Am/G       D/F#      Am           Am/G    D/F#
I'm gonna tell everybody it was painted by a chimpanzee, but just between you and me
             G                               G7                                       C/G
Here at the cultural low water mark, if it's fraud or art, they'll pay you to believe

Verse 2: 
C/G                             F                C/G
I'm gonna take five young dudes, from white families
C/G                                    D                 G
Gonna mount em on a billboard, in the middle of the country
F                   Fm                  Am           Am/G   D/F#      Am           Am/G    D/F#
I'm gonna tell everybody they sing like angels with whiter teeth, but just between you and me
                      G                                              G7                                 C/G
They're just like the ones before, with their standards lower, every concert goer will pay you to believe


F                        C/G
Caffeine in the morning, alcohol at night
F                                 C/G
Cameras to record you and mirrors to recognize
           Am                        Am/G          D/F#
And as the world is getting smaller, small things take up all your time
          Am                         Am/G  D/F# 
Narcissus would have had a field day if he could have got online

                 G                  G7                             Am   Am/G   D/F#
And friends it's not self-love that kills you, it's when those who hate you are allowed
                 G                 G7             Am      Am/G   D/F#
To sell you that you're a glorious shit the entire world revolves around
                    G                  G7                   Am        Am/G   D/F#
And that you're the eater, and not the eaten, but that your hunger will only cease
            G                G7                  Am Am/G  D/F#
If you come binge on radiant blandness at the disposable feast...

     Am                    F 
Just quickly how would you rate yourself
            Am                        F
In terms of sex appeal and cultural significance? 
Do you usually listen to music like this? can we recommend some similar artists?
        Gm                                        F#             F
Are you feeling depressed?...but your feedback's important,...to us...

Verse 3: 

C/G                            F                C/G
Gonna buy myself a sports team, and put em in a pit
C/G                           D                 G
Gonna wage the old crusade, against consciousness
F                      Fm                  Am       Am/G     D/F#                Am                Am/G  D/F#
All I need's a couple winners to get every loser to fight in it, keep the golden calf, just need the bullshit
                      G                                   G7                                    C/G
They won't just sell themselves into slavery, they'll get on their knees and pay you to believe
